Easy Avocado Chicken Salad

Delicious avocado chicken salad.
I was surprised to see how much flavor this had. I wasn't expecting that because there is only lime juice for liquid. I used a piece of leftover chicken I'd made before that did have a lot of seasoning to it. The only change I made was to use Tajin rather than cayenne. The recipe doesn't state how to use the chicken once it is cooked, so I chose to slice it in thin strips. I love all the ingredients, and I'd make this again in a heartbeat! Easy and delicious!

I loved it. Had the chicken salad on some thin wheat bread. I would change a couple things. I would say the best mixture would be one avocado per pound of chicken. I had two chicken breasts totaling about 1.8 lbs. I ended up using just one. I'm not big on Cilantro, so I didn't use it. I would use a bit less chopped onion as well. Great recipe and certainly something I can build on. Thank you very much!
I liked this, but for me it lacked a little bit in flavor. I know this takes away from the "healthy" aspect of it, but I did add a little mayo. It did make the flavor pop and made it just a little more like a traditional chicken salad consistency which I liked. We heaped it on some thick sliced rustic french bread, and yum! the leftovers went in the fridge and the next day after the ingredients had more time to meld together it tasted even better!
Yum, yum, yum! I used canned chicken and two small avocados until I thought the balance was right.
Delicious!! I wanted a healthy chicken salad to put on a sandwich without all the mayo and sour cream. This one has great flavor and the onions really add great flavor!
This recipe is so quick and easy and very tasty! My husband and I both LOVED it the first time i made it. I think in the future i will add more avocado, and may marinate the chicken in lime and cilantro before cooking it, but whatever it is, it is delish!
The only change I made was using rotisserie chicken instead of baking my own. I think if I were fixing for my picky children, who might not like the crunchy celery and onions, (even though I dice mine very fine) I could use onion powder and celery salt. Loved it! Great flavor! I will fix again!
This was really good! I always boil my chicken when I'm going to shed it, makes it go faster. I added a tablespoon of ranch dressing to cream it a bit, and some dry ranch powder to zest it a bit. Also, went heavier on the lime and cilantro than the recipe called for, just because I like those ingredients. I think some cherry tomatoes would be a good addition if I had those on hand. Served open faced on a piece of bread. Yum!
This is awesome! I did twist the recipe a little... I baked the chicken with garlic salt and lemon pepper then chunked it instead of shredding. Also I used lemon instead of lime due to not having any lime. Served over a green salad. The whole family loved it! I will be taking the leftovers for lunch. I plan on wrapping it in a tortilla with some ranch.
This was delicious! I made it for a small group gathering and everyone loved it! Thanks for the recipe!!
Used Cajun seasoning rather than cayenne. Also used leftover chicken . Loved the lime flavor also. Excellent!
This was amazing! The whole family loved it!
Excellent, I added couple more chicken breast it g
Nice change from the 'mayo' chicken salad! I used 2 cans of chicken & 2 avocados. Added some garlic powder, otherwise all else as written.
Delicious! I used juice from a whole lime and two avocados since they were small. I spread Duke’s mayo on the bread and sliced Campari tomatoes on top. Yum!
Quite good. Like some other reviewers, I thought it needed a little more flavor, so I added about 1/4 cup mayo and a little more cayenne. The mayo also helped it stick together better. I just cooked the chicken breasts on the stove top and used two avocados - otherwise I kept the ingredients and proportions the same. Served it on beds of crisp Romain lettuce on a hot summer night. I think you could play with this recipe depending on what you have. Next time I would consider adding toasted slivered almonds, grapes or mango.
This was very good! I left out the scallions and onion and celery. And I sprinkled salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder on both sides of the chicken before baking it. I used 2 large avocados and added extra salt. We ate it as a dip with tostada chips. Soooo good!
Delicious. The only thing I did differently than the recipe was add some extra lime juice and chicken drippings, to counter how dry it was.
Very good. Since it’s only me I only used 3oz of chicken breast and reduced the other ingredients to make one serving. To cook the chicken I cut it into strips, seasoned with garlic salt and smoked paprika. I then sautéed it using a little coconut oil which cut down on the prep time. Since I’m on a low carb diet I will definitely make this again!
very simple and clean, tasty food! i will try it again
Super quick and easy! I added sides of pico de gallo, radishes, lime wedges, parmesan cheese, and cilantro.
Tasty, easy-to-make, and the avocado's a great substitute for mayo.
This was great! I used leftover rotisserie chicken, so no cooking needed, and I didn't use as much chicken as suggested, but I doubled the avocado from 1 to 2. I served it as the "salad" part of a meal and my family loved it. This recipe is very adaptable and SO easy and delicious!
